Since 2009, Miracle Jeans Day has encouraged groups and individuals alike to trade their traditional work attire for casual clothes to help raise funds for kids treated at Cohen Children’s Medical Center, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Dressing down may lead to a more comfortable day in the office for you, but on Miracle Jeans Day it also generates hope for families who receive care of Cohen Children’s.

Dozens of Health System offices and businesses throughout Long Island and New York City participated in “Miracle Jeans Day” this fall, to raise money for Cohen Children’s Medical Center. More than $25,000, was raised for Cohen Children’s through this event where participants contributed to the cause. These donations support research, clinical care, the purchase of equipment and supplies, and to off-set uncompensated care, all to improve the lives of as many children as possible.

Companies like Professional Physical Therapy have shown how deeply they care about our community by making a significant impact on Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
